their fair share of taxes. he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their children and gun-free zones for our kids. host: that the latest ad by the nra, put out yesterday, getting a lot of feedback about the ad invoking the president's children. the "washington times" has this headline this morning about president obama's event this morning. that is our question for all of you. if president obama acts on his own with executive action, do you support that idea? we're getting your take on that this morning. we will go to sandra in sulphur springs, texas, a republican. caller: how are you? i just have a question to ask the rest of the people listening. what about the fort hood shootings? has anybody thought about how many guns were there? the man walked in, he was a psychologist, he walked in and killed our soldiers at fort hood. . what is the gun ban going to do on that? what does obama think about that? host: what do you think about the president taking some actions on his own? caller: i don't think anybody ought to take our guns away.

, he said he would not extend any of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy and you did. you say you're not going to negotiate this year, why should house republicans take that seriously and think if we did into the 1 minute until midnight scenario that you will not back down? >> first of all, julianna, let's take the example of this year's fiscal cliff. i did not say we would not have any conversations out all about extending the bush tax cuts. i said we would not extend them for the wealthy. we did not. now, you can argue that during the campaign i said i set the criteria for "wealthy" at $250 on dollars and we ended up being a $400,000, but millionaires are paying more taxes, just as i said. from the start, my concern was making sure we had a tax code that was fair and protected the middle class. when biggest priority is making sure that middle-class taxes did not go up. the difference between this year and 2011 is the fact that we have already made $2 trillion in cuts. at the time, i indicated that there were cuts that we could sensibly make that would not damage our economy, wou

revenue through tax reform by closing loopholes in our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it's fair, for example, to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care, or a scientist to shut down lifesaving research so that a multimillionaire investor can pay less in tax rates than a secretary. they don't think it's smart to protect endless corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans rather than rebuild our roads and our schools, invest in our workers' skills, or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. so they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way, where everybody pulls their weight, everyone does their part. that's what i w

different visions. a republican said, you know what, we didn't win that fiscal cliff battle, we raised taxes, we didn't want to do it, now this has got to be all about spending cuts and you have the president saying, no, it is going to be about raising the debt ceiling, then we can talk about some kind of grand bargain. but you have to get over the speed bump, brooke. and i just -- >> hang on a second. you used two words -- gloria borger, you're saying grand bargain? is that -- ali velshi, let me ask you that, grand bargain, is that in our lexicon anymore? >> yeah, i don't even know if bargain is a possibility. gloria knows the politics of this better than i do. the -- somebody asked the question at the press conference, the president said he's not negotiating on this, but you said that about increasing taxes, the last debt limit. i don't know where you go from here politically. i only know economically the market will act as an enforcer and interest rates will act as an enforcer if you don't get it right. how you get a deal, that's above my pay grade. >> and, brooke, the real problem here,

and actually to get from where we are, given the spending cuts and tax increases that we've implemented so far, to where we need to be to stabilize the debt, is not that heavy a lift if we had a functional politics that was actually paying attention to what needs to be done instead of creating these ridiculous self-inflicted skirmishes and wounds. as you have correctly pointed out, you have even got conservatives spokespeople saying, look, this isn't going to happen, you're not going to do this. we're going to have one of these last minute solutions again. if that is truly the case and if history is precedent, it will be, we really have to ask ourselves about our priorities. >> and yet, david, the problem is the fitch ratings agency has already threatened a ratings downgrade. and it even has a retort who think debt ceiling hostage taking can be a weapon against spending calling it an infective and potentially dangerous mechanism for enforcing fiscal discipline. so what is this obsession they have of falling on their sword and taking the country with them. >> there you go again, martin, stickin

a fair, flat tax. host: we are not really talking about that this morning. we are talking about the gun proposals specifically. what kind of gun do you have? caller: i have more than one because i am a hunter. i enjoy hunting. again, back to what we were saying before. that is about all i want to say about it. i think mr. obama and the congress both do not have a clue about what is going on out here in the real world. host: adalfo, what are your thoughts? caller: when i went to high school there was a police presence at all times. the sheriffs are the -- in charge of the campus. in regards to the president's comments, i think there are far reaching and might be unconstitutional. i helped john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him -- i hope john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him from doing whatever he wants. he cannot do what ever he wants. i think they should work together. it was a sad thing what happened on the east coast. that does not go to the root of the problem. people should not have guns, let's focus on them, not eliminating certain types of gu
